Little League Softball

Illinois District 13 Softball is comprised of 8 leagues whom participate in the Minors, Majors, Juniors, and Seniors divisions of Little League Softball.  We believe in the Little League Mission and incorporate it into everything we do.

Little League Softball Program Information

Little League Softball was established in 1974 and today 360,000 athletes participate on more than 24,000 softball teams in over 20 countries. Softball initially began with only two divisions, but now offers programs for girls ages 4 through 16. Every year, local Little Leagues enroll players within their boundaries to create teams and play a regular season against neighboring communities. In June, leagues have the opportunity to select and enter all-star teams to compete in the Little League International Tournament. 

Little League Softball currently operates seven tournament divisions as part of the International Tournament where teams must play to advance through District, Section, State, Region, and World Series tournaments. Four divisions culminate at a Softball World Series where athletes will make lasting memories, create life-long friendships, compete against the best teams from nine US and International regions and one league will be crowned World Champions. In addition to each World Series championship televised on ESPN’s family of networks, the Little League, Senior League and Big League semi-finals are also broadcasted.
